Check out Rammount.com. All of their stuff is completely modular, and they have some pretty slick waterproof mounting boxes for touchscreens. Their clamp systems are very similar to what the Army uses to mount stuff inside combat vehicles. I'm planning on getting one for my bike.

I might go with motodracings mount, you can also mount a camera too, but its a little pricey at $65 I don't know if they charge shipping or taxes too

If you take a cheap case and mod it a little it's more then enough room for both. The motodracing mount is a great thing. Trying to figure out a way to run the micro usb cord for charging and not have it show much if at all.
